Baseball card blog focusing on 1971 Topps, cards of catchers and the Colorado Rockies, sometimes drifting of into other areas or sports.

Small Zistle Trade
That's right, there are a few stubborn zistlers still around, and a few trades being made. If zistle does indeed one day go to that big web server in the sky, these are the trades I will miss. Random stuff that wasn't really even on my wantlist but found browsing peoples tradelists. Weird stuff like 1991 Leaf catchers, the veteran Jamie Quirk who has a Rockies connection as a former coach and even more veteran Rick Dempsey with a very oddly cropped card.
If you didn't believe me about the veteran parts, check out the card backs, Dempsey has parts of 4 decades on there and the mustache to prove it.
I am not a Blue Jays fan, but I was always a Pat Borders fan, solid catcher who gained a little fame as the 1992 World Series MVP.
Some 2016 Gypsy Queen help with a Tony Perez mini foil and the Bog Cat on a Power Alley insert.
And my first Gerardo Parra Rockies card, not a bad shot for Heritage, actually this set has kind of grown on me, Parra and his NL worst -2.8 WAR on the other hand, has not.
